Demi (2015) Trailer. Directed by Caris Rianne.

Exploring the discrimination against bisexuality, Demi focuses on Dianna, a young girl who feels stuck and left behind by her friendship group of ballet dancers and boyfriend who is away at university. When she meets the new girl at college Demi, she begins to form feelings for her that are about to change not only her life but the others around her.

Wakers Premiere Kickstarter

Hi, everyone! So, a good friend of mine, Blessing C.S, has just finished acting for an art-horror film called Wakers- you can watch the trailer here. It is directed by transgender filmmaker Dylan Greenberg and stars Blessing C.S, Jude Thomas, and Matt Katz-Bohen. It’s about a girl who lives in a dreary, black-and-white version of New York, but tries a new, experimental drug that brings her world into colour. But, the drug isn’t all it seems- something dark is at play with it.

Presently, they are trying to raise enough money to hold a showing at their local theatre, and need $700 to do it. That’s where you guys come in. 

The link to the IndieGoGo campaign is here- it would be greatly appreciated if you guys could donate as much as you can- every little bit would be appreciated, and there are some cool benefits listed for people who want to donate a little bit more.

The movie will be posted online later so that you can watch it even if you do not live in the New York area. Please consider donating and help this amazing movie get a showing! If you can’t donate, a signal boosting post would be appreciated.


Happy to finally present to you folks a trailer for my film No Way Jose. A labor of lust, I co-wrote this with Sarah Kate Levy, directed it, made some songs for it, and licked it. It’s got an exceptional ensemble with some wonderful known and not so known actors – great friends of mine with whom I’ve collaborated on a variety of other projects and other mediums over the years before writing for them. Featuring Ahna O’Reilly, Emily Osment, thepathealy , Brendan Hines, Anna Belknap, and steveagee  making a very special appearance as The Clown). Also featuring some badass titles from number34 and an amazing soundtrack featuring some of my favorite ‘70s era tunes I cleared for the film, but not the trailer.  Coming to a home near you on July 7. You can pre-order the DVD (bonus features, commentary by me, etc)  or watch it on iTunes and other digital outlets in July. Or both. Or neither. It’s your life, you need to do what’s best for you.
